I love roasted corn on the cob. It is great on the grill or in the oven.
The question is, what do you do on when corn on the cob isn’t in season? I found the answer on Pinterest. So, as a part of my Pinterest Challenge, I roasted up some frozen corn… well, actually, I broiled it up.
The original pin linked to a recipe for soup that briefly mentioned roasting frozen corn. After reading those few paragraphs, I knew I had to try it.
All you have to do is spread the frozen corn on a baking sheet, sprinkle it with olive oil (or spray with olive oil cooking spray) and then add salt and pepper to taste. Turn on the broiler, and then put the baking sheet on the top rack (make sure that the oven rack is in the top spot just under the broiler). Cook for 8-15 minutes (the longer it cooks, the crunchier it will be).
The corn tastes great just out of the oven. However, keep in mind that if it sits to long, it may become chewy.
This is a great alternative to roasted corn on the cob. Try it out when corn on the cob is out of season, or you just want quick and easy roasted corn.
